Default Reconnaissance Corps - Part 1 of 2

These items are from one "lot" but with no real provenance. Grateful for opinions from members on their authenticity (or otherwise)! Part 2 shows cap and collar badges with 5 Division Signs.

The Title with the glue back in my opinion is fine! the printed pair is the right colour backing. Is the title a thick construction or paper thin?

The printed S/T Recce look ok - be it unissued - but I am also interested to hear other views of the respectable forum.

Cheers

They are all okay. Nothing wrong with these. I am 100% certain that they are genuine.
